Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6495-1

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6495-1
Posted Nov 22, 2023
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 6495-1 - Yu Hao discovered that the UBI driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check for MTD with zero erasesize during device attachment. A local privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Manfred Rudigier discovered that the Intel PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate received frames that are larger than the set MTU size, leading to a buffer overflow vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.

vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-bluefield: Linux kernel for NVIDIA BlueField platforms
- linux-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-iot: Linux kernel for IoT platforms
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-xilinx-zynqmp: Linux kernel for Xilinx ZynqMP processors
- linux-aws-5.4: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-ibm-5.4: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-oracle-5.4: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi-5.4: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems

Details:

Yu Hao discovered that the UBI driver in the Linux kernel did not properly
check for MTD with zero erasesize during device attachment. A local
privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-31085)

Manfred Rudigier discovered that the Intel(R) PCI-Express Gigabit (igb)
Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate received
frames that are larger than the set MTU size, leading to a buffer overflow
vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-45871)

Update instructions:

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed.
Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages
(e.g. linux-generic, linux-generic-lts-RELEASE, linux-virtual,
linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform
this as well.
